  1. Yes. It will be a dedicated space that is used for many things. My wife will use the space mostly as her dedicated office for her Marriage and Family Therapy Counseling practice. A separate exterior entrance to the room will be provided specifically with this purpose in mind. This allows her to practice easily from home as her schedule allows and not have to rent an office (no driving time to get to appointments, no wear and tear on cars, etc). When not used for that she will also use it as a dedicated art studio, she enjoys painting with acrylics and has no dedicated space in the house for th
  2. All pictures taken this winter here at the house.
  3. Dane County - Here is the zoning sheet for RR-1, which is what we are. I am limited to the size of the building based on lot size, can have up to 30% of the lot covered with building(s). I won't come near this with my planned pole barn. https://danecountyplanning.com/documents/pdf/Zoning-District-Fact-Sheets/RR-1.pdf Rough floor plan (not all exterior windows/doors are shown) that I have been tossing around for awhile:
  4. Currently NO BIDS on this one. Front end damage, but very fixable. Someone snag this one up! https://www.copart.com/lot/57813490/salvage-1988-jeep-comanche-ky-louisville
  5. A very good deal. And it is complete, right down to the plugs for the unused hitch balls. A deal to be had!
  6. Both trucks and all of the MJ parts will get consolidated in the new barn. A 36’ deep stall will be dedicated for both of the trucks to park back to back. You guys are more than welcome to swing by as things progress along. Got to get the trees down and fill brought in first...
  7. That’s the plan. In 20 years I’ll be retired and woodworking my days away. :)
  8. Thanks! The chainsaw mill is good for small stuff that sawmills would scoff at and not even want to load into their mill. I have only used it for cutting hardwood. I bought it in 2015 and have cut mostly oak and cherry with it. In 2019 I cut some walnut with it for a friend, that tree was 18" diameter and we did a 10' log. It was just under a tank of gas on the Stihl 041 AV Super per pass - keep in mind that is walnut. Cherry cuts more efficiently, oak does take plenty of fuel as well. The mill is an Alaskan MK III mill, they now have a slightly improved version MK IV. It is very simple to use
  9. That is the plan. Our lot is 1.2 acres and it has plenty of mixed hardwood on it. As the trees come down over the years it is my intent to mill as much of them as I can for lumber. The pole barn will have a nice workshop in the NW corner and I hope to be able to make many nice wood projects through the years. The lumber that I don’t use myself I’ll sell for profit. Each of the remaining 3 trees that need to come down will have plenty of sawlogs in them. The Basswood is the only one I have on the property that is ready for harvest so EVERY bit of that one that can be milled will be cut for lumb
  10. No further work on the shed has taken place. I have been busy on clearing land for the pole barn. Slower going than I had hoped as it has been me alone mostly doing the work. I’m down to three trees left to come down and they are all BIG. Basswood, Black Oak and White Oak. As the tress come down I cut and split them into firewood. I have kept some saw logs for cutting into boards. I just started cutting up some of the black cherry last weekend. I have some elm as well that I’ll do with the chainsaw mill. Bigger logs will go to the actual sawmill... Here are photos of th
  11. @All around mj Just so everyone is on the same page, the junkyard that I was sourcing these connectors at is closed to the public due to COVID. When they open back up I hope to get right up there and grab more, until then I don’t have any more of these connectors available...
  12. Looking great Ben! Nice progress for 2020. 2021 will be a great year for finishing this all off how you want it. The hardest work is done, and it was done very nicely! Be proud, you have done a great job on this.
  13. Interested, going to need more details and probably give my RSVP later in the winter when I know more about the situation I’ll be in then for the spring.
  14. Finally getting around to this... here are yards that I know there are still MJs in them as I have visited them all in 2020. Jack's Auto Ranch - N6848 N Island View Rd, Watertown, WI 53094 - 5 MJs in stock as of Fall of 2020. I have all of them registered in the MJ Registry. This place is HUGE, I have not been down each row of the entire junkyard yet and I have been there at least 10 times. Somewhat friendly for pull your own parts. The MJs are all over the place here, hard to describe their locations as the place is so large. 3D Auto Salvage - 10139 E County Rd A, Ja
  15. Next year our 5 year old Daughter becomes a Lion in Cub Scouts. Her Sister will follow suit 2 years later. I never followed thru with OA after the Ordeal. I fell in love with Jeeps, skiing and welding instead...
  16. Got the message both of you left for me about adding in info that I know of. Yes - I'll happily add in the info that I have. It will be a longer list, don't have the time to do it right now. I'll edit this post with my info hopefully later this week.

    Visited this truck yesterday. Pulled the AC bypass pulley, mech fan shroud, B pillar lights and a few other odds and ends. Still there!

    Visited this yard yesterday and verified the truck is still there. Still could not get the hood open, drivers side latch is stuck.

    Visited this truck again yesterday. Removed the seat from it this time for use in my Dad's/Brother's truck. FYI - Maroon seat belts are all free now and just laying in the truck, center belt was cut before I got there so it is no good. Tailgate was taken by someone else, no longer there.
